We are healing and transforming the lives of abused, abandoned, and at-risk children, young adults and families. It takes a village- please join ours!
SJRC provides a broad array of therapeutic services in safe home-like environments built upon love, respect and dignity where children start new lives with new chances, new choices and new hope. We offer them opportunities to dream; dreams they never knew were possible.
A dream 15 years in the making for the St. Jude Children's Ranch in Bulverde came true Thursday. It's a brand new rec room thanks to Santikos Entertainment and the First Chance Foundation, but its much more than that.
"It is so fantastic to walk in the door and see how this place turned out, and how many great memories are going to come out of this as young people congregate here and have a safe wonderful environment to have fun year round," said David Holmes, CEO of Santikos Entertainment.
It's a game room most kids only dream of. And those kids at St. Jude's Ranch deserve to have those dreams come true.
The room is chock-full of fun, from car racing video games to a pool table, foosball, air hockey, board games, chess, and evening miniature bowling.
There's also a 10-seat theater where kids can sit back in a safe environment, watch a movie, and maybe eat some popcorn too.
"It's got surround sound. It's a great experience, although I do have to be honest, I spent a little bit of time on that Fast and Furious game over in the corner," said Clint Swindall of the First Chance Foundation.
